Lehigh University – Singleton, Hitch & Maida Houses
As part of Lehigh University’s Residential Life Master Plan, a number of new residential life facilities are being added to the Asa Packer Campus. The project will better connect the campus via improved walkways and an accessible route through the common areas of the buildings and will reduce stormwater runoff through the use of green roofs and underground basins. Langan prepared a site and grading plan to illustrate possible site work improvements. We also conducted a traffic and pedestrian study along the Trembley/University Drive corridor. With this study, we investigated potential improvements, explored impacts, and acquired necessary approvals from the City of Bethlehem and the ADA Advisory Board to redirect traffic on campus and create a pedestrian promenade for students and faculty. Langan also provided geotechnical engineering design, investigation and reporting, rock excavation investigation, and slope stability analysis, and will remain engaged in the project throughout construction. The project is pursuing LEED certification.
